Make No Mistake - HSUS Has Targeted Hunting for Extinction

Recent online message from HSUS (Humane Society of the United States) Leader Points to More Issues.

Ban dove hunting in Michigan – check. Outlaw trapping in California – check. Prohibit black bear hunting in Colorado – check. Sue to stop hunting on federal lands – check. Merge with other anti-hunting groups to form multi-million dollar mega animal rights group – check.

This is how the Humane Society of the United States plans to pick off your hunting and trapping heritage – and it is only getting started. A recent online message from HSUS President Wayne Pacelle spells out what aspects of the traditional lifestyle are next on the hit list.

Family Hunting Opportunities in the Crosshairs

Right off the bat, the HSUS has its sights on the Families Afield campaign.

Families Afield is promoted by the USSA, National Wild Turkey Federation and National Shooting Sports Foundation to breakdown hunting barriers and increase hunter recruitment. Through the program, the partnership works to eliminate hunting age requirements and ease hunter education mandates for first-time hunters.

The HSUS falsely claims the program "places children in unnecessary danger." It hopes to feed on the public’s weariness of children with firearms, but sportsmen must accurately convey the message that youth hunting is safe.

"Research documents that the most important factor affecting youth hunting safety is the presence of a responsible, attentive adult hunter," said Bud Pidgeon, USSA president. "Available data from states that have implemented Families Afield initiatives reveals that apprentice hunting license programs brought nearly 34,000 new hunters to the field in 2006, without a single hunting-related shooting incident."

Any Given Sunday

For the sportsmen who work during the week, Sunday may be the only chance they have to sit in a tree stand or try out a new game call, but the anti’s shake their fingers at that as well.

"The Humane Society misrepresents the truth when it claims that ‘hunters have six days a week to themselves in the woods,’ and it calls on the public to oppose Sunday hunting opportunities," said Pidgeon. "The group’s statement gives the impression that Sundays are the only days that non-hunters may enter the woods during hunting season, which is obviously completely false."

The liberal world works one thing at a time.
Remember the Communist waltz? Three steps forward, two steps back. Like letting the fox into the hen house!

You got that right Jon. In military terms this would be called “guerilla tactics” and it works great because the defender never knows where the next blow comes from. This makes it very difficult to make a plan of attack. In addition the antis get help from the hunters bashing each other, rifle hunters v. bowhunters, bowhunters v. crossbow hunters and so on. All these silly, unfounded difference are used by the antis against ALL of us. Untied we stand, divided we fall. It’s that simple.

What amazes me is the amount of people who buy into this crazy message. I was sitting in a bar in Cleveland and met a couple of people and when I stated that I was a hunter and a wildlife conservationist they were appalled. How can you be a conservationist and still hunt? I spent the next hour talking about the North American Conservation Model and teaching! Hopefully it did some good but the amount of TV shows and articles that are anti-hunting have us all outnumbered!

Thanks for stopping by Kevin.
The way I see it is, we have now two generations that have grown up on Walt Disney movies, like Bambi, Flipper, Ben the Bear and such nonsense. Such movies but human traits on animals, this should not come not as a surprise considering that Walt Disney was an avid anti-hunter and animal rights advocate. Wit movies like the Lion King where the lion and gazelle happily sit together and sing catchy tunes it is a small wonder that people are appalled when they hear or see that a human-like animal is killed.

Sadly but true most people have lost completely touch with the reality of nature and what it is, and these are the people that fall victim to the animal rights lies and malicious discrimination against hunters and others involved with animals and animal husbandry in any shape and form.
